While the Singapore property market stops for breath and assesses the effects of the government’s ongoing and determined cooling measures, both tenants and potential buyers are being given an unusual break as the market flattens and slows to a steadier pace.
Q2 should give us more concrete results after the market adjustment in Q1. While some areas have adjusted downwards in terms of both sale and rental prices, others have seen slight price increases.
Expat Realtor’s ever-popular May property soiree will focus on alternative property options on the nearby shores of Indonesia and Malaysia, and we will hear from expats who have been through the experience of purchasing there. Steve Melhuish, co-founder of award-wining Property Guru, will also update us on the Singapore property market.
